Patient Records: 1916-1936

In it’s Centenary year of 2016, Erskine partnered with the University of Glasgow to work on a variety of projects which gave a fascinating insight into the history of Erskine, when it was known as the Princess Louise Hospital for Limbless Sailors and Soldiers (find out more about these projects here). A key historical asset is the admissions register, covering the period from 1916 -1936, which shows the patients admitted during that time.

The University received a grant from the Wellcome Trust to conserve and digitise the admissions register to make it widely available to researchers. Thanks to volunteer indexers from the Glasgow and West of Scotland Family History Society  the data from 1916-1936 is now fully searchable. Click the link below to begin your search.
